60% Syrah, 22% Merlot, 18% Cabernet Sauvignon
19 months in oak

94-Points, Wine Spectator – “A plush and generous blend that also shows excellent structure and focus. Brooding dark boysenberry and smoky mocha aromas combine with layered flavors of blackberry, graphite, nutmeg and brown spice. The tannins are burly, but ripe and fleshy. Syrah, Merlot, and Cabernet Sauvignon.”

Winemaker notes – “There’s no Alice Cooper in his iTunes library, but Alec is 18 – and he likes it! For his college Freshman year send-off we blended 60% Syrah, 22% Merlot and 18% Cabernet Sauvignon – a power chord trio of guitar, bass and drums that rocks harder than any vintage in recent memory. Super ripe blackberry, vanilla, blueberry, mocha and oak spices gain presence and steadily push the volume past 10. Tons of ripe, hedonistic fruit brings big stage presence while handsomely hewn tannins add drive and keep this wall of sound distortion free. Aged 19 months in oak.”
